The accurate knowledge of neutron cross-sections of a variety of plutonium isotopes and other minor
actinides, such as neptunium, americium and curium, is crucial for feasibility and performance studies of advanced
nuclear systems (Generation-IV reactors, Accelerator Driven Systems). In this context, the240Pu(n,f) cross-section
was measured with the time-of-flight technique at the CERN n-TOF facility at incident neutron energies ranging from
thermal to several MeV. The present measurement is the...
